Launch of the SIMAR Project

The HE SIMAR Project is pleased to inform you about the official start of the project on the 1st of September.

The SIMAR Project is a Horizon Europe Project whose proposes a new type of inspection robot that is composed of an aerial system with advanced navigation capabilities that will allow to safely land on pipes, even if they are located in complex and cluttered locations and deploy untethered and light-weight crawlers to perform complete inspections of insulated pipes.
